Does anyone have kids that like to color on EVERYTHING?

My daughter is two years old and every time she gets a hold of any pen, marker, crayon, ect. she decides to color everything. The walls, floors, tables, couches, herself, and anything else close. Did anyone else have this problem? If so I need some ideas on how to stop it!

I hid everything except the sidewalk chalk. Chalk comes off the walls easily enough that I don't care if it's all over everything.

I let logan have chalk too but anything else no since he wants to draw on everything BUT the paper when he has pens or pencils or crayons

yep crayons markers make up anything. All I can say is put it away hide it or keep it up high. My granddaughter actually painted the door with mascara and herself with bright pink nail polish. If you want her to experience color get the washable markers and crayons, they are amazing.

Yes. They're 5 and still do. The crayons, pens, markers, etc have all been removed to an area out of reach and may only be used with help.
